Giving voice to the voiceless: Stop dog fighting!

Everyone should watch this eye-opening video about dog fighting from the point of view of the dogs themselves. I found this on the blog of Parker & Company and after watching it, I felt the need to repost it to further spread the awareness about the cruelty of dog fighting.

Michael Killen is the brilliant mind behind this video. After hearing about the Michael Vick dog fighting ring, Killen was moved to take action and let the dogs speak this time. You can read more about the making of this video through his website, Peace for Dogs.

Dog fighting is a serious form of animal abuse. Because of this barbaric and brutal "act", certain dog breeds such as American Pit Bull Terriers and Staffordshire Bull Terriers, are suffering the stigma of being branded as "aggressive dogs."

Sadly, dog fighting continues to be widely-practiced among many countries. Please help stop dog fighting. If you know any information about dog fighting in your area, please report them to the authorities. You may also sign this petition against dog fighting.

Start spreading the news...about Sinatra!

Start spreading the news....Sinatra is here!

Sinatra's a brindle male German Shepherd Dog and Boxer mix that is approximately 2 years old. He weighs about 50 lbs. He's got a big love and is a big goofball! He is very energetic and would love to have a lot of toys to keep his attention and energy focus.

Sinatra will be best suited for a home where the owners are used to big, strong dogs. He would benefit greatly from some obedience training, but with a little work, he will definitely make a fantastic pet.

Sinatra has been neutered, microchipped, and tested negative for heartworm. He is ready and waiting to find a new home where he will be loved for who he is.

To learn more about Sinatra's adoption requirements, please visit the Peninsula SPCA website or call (757) 595-1399.
